Fox’s O’Reilly: News media want to ‘punish’ Trump for ‘not cowering’

BY EDDIE SCARRY

All the negative press Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing lately is the result of a national press out to get him and “not looking out” for the American public. That’s according to Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly.

On his show Tuesday, O’Reilly said Trump is getting a raw deal from the national press because he isn’t “cowering before them.”

“He has no fear,” said O’Reilly, who has been known to attend sporting events with Trump. “He could not care less about censoring himself and the press does not intimidate him. So because of that approach, the media believe they must punish Mr. Trump for being disrespectful and not cowering before them. Plus, they don’t like his politics, generally speaking.”

Controversy erupted this week after Trump, speaking at an event in Iowa over the weekend, questioned the legitimacy of Vietnam vet and Republican Arizona Senator John McCain as a “war hero.” At the time, Trump was reacting to McCain, who had referred to Trump supporters as “crazies.”

Political commentators and some of Trump’s rivals for the GOP presidential nomination called on the real estate mogul to abandon his campaign but Trump, who is at or near the top in some national polls, stood by his comment.

“The press [is] a very powerful force in America, given special privilege by the Founding Fathers,” O’Reilly said. “And if the press deem someone unworthy, they will try to destroy that person. That’s where Donald Trump finds himself today.”

O’Reilly asserted that Trump’s treatment by the press is proof that the national news media are generally “not looking out” for the public. “They have an agenda, these people, and they often use that agenda in corrupt ways,” he said. “You as a media consumer should walk away when you see that happen.”

Kate Steinle’s dad: Illegals kill once every 12 days, ‘unbelievable’

Kate Steinle’s dad begs Congress, take illegals ‘off the streets for good’

BY PAUL BEDARD

The father of a 32-year-old woman shot dead in San Francisco allegedly by an undocumented immigrant deported five times shocked a Senate hearing on the government’s immigration policies Tuesday when he revealed that illegals with criminal records kill every 12 days.

Jim Steinle, whose daughter Kathryn Steinle died in his arms on popular Pier 14 this month, decried “disjointed laws and basic incompetence” for his daughter’s death as they walked together and demanded legislation to bar the release of illegals from jails in so-called “sanctuary cities” like San Francisco.

“Unfortunately due to disjointed laws and basic incompetence on many levels, the U.S. has suffered a self-inflicted wound in the murder of our daughter by the hand of a person who should never have been on the streets of this country,” he said firmly.

One of several to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing chaired by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, Steinle also revealed a shocking statistic of blunder and murder.

“Between, 2010-2014,” he said, “121 criminal aliens who had an active deportation case at the time of their release, were subsequently charged with homicide, homicide-related offenses. Think about that, 121 times over the past four years, an illegal immigrant with prior criminal convictions that later went on to be charged with murder when they should have been deported, that is one every 12 days.”

Kathryn Steinle was allegedly killed by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant convicted of seven felonies. He has pleaded not guilty. He was released from a San Francisco jail before the murder despite a “detainer” request from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement because the city is one of over 300 “sanctuary cities” that ignore ICE demands for access to criminal illegals.

The so-called “Kate’s Law” pushed by her parents and championed by Fox News star Bill O’Reilly would declare that “undocumented aliens who are deported and return to the United States would receive a mandatory five year sentence in a federal penitentiary upon conviction.”

Said Jim Steinle, “take these undocumented felons off the streets for good.”

U.S. Army Refuses to Send Honor Guard to Historic 1774 Church, BUT Sends Honor Guard to Washington’s Gay Pride Parade

The U.S. Army has provided an honor guard for an Independence Day celebration at a Baptist church for nearly two decades, but this year that tradition will not continue.

Fort Gordon officials have reported that they will not be able to send an honor guard to a July 5th service at Abilene Baptist Church as it would violate a military policy that bans any involvement in a religious service.

“While there are conditions under which the Army can participate in events conducted at a house of worship, we cannot participate in the context of a religious service,” Public Affairs Officer J.C. Mathews told Fox News.

“It was an absolute shock,” said Brad Whitt, the current pastor of Abilene Baptist Church. “What a sad commentary on the state of affairs in America – when we cannot even allow the flags to fly if they are in a church building.”

“We’ve had a tremendous working relationship with the fort,” he stated. “We’ve hosted all sorts of events for military families. We really try to show our love and respect and we try to honor our military folks.”

Pastor Whitt was confused by the Army’s slight as Fort Gordon has been providing an honor guard for the past 20 years.

“They have participated for the past two decades and now they are saying – no,” he stated. “This is just another example of the secularization of America.”

The Pentagon will not allow an honor guard to attend a church service; however, they have no problem allowing them to march in a gar pride parade.

Just last year, the Department of Defense granted permission for an honor guard to participate in Washington, D.C.’s gay pride parade. In addition, an honor guard will march in the 2015 Capital Pride parade later this year.

KARL ROVE WALKS BACK ‘REPEAL THE SECOND AMENDMENT’ COMMENTS AFTER UPROAR

Capture

by AWR HAWKINS
During a Monday interview with Fox News’ David Webb, Fox News’ contributor Karl Rove walked back his Fathers’ Day comments in which he said “violence involving guns” is not going away “until somebody gets enough oomph to repeal the Second Amendment.”

His exact words, from Sunday:

So, we have come a long way. Now, maybe there’s some magic law that will keep us from having more of these. I mean, basically, the only way to guarantee that we would dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society, and until somebody gets enough oomph to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen.

I don’t think it’s an answer.

Although Rove made these comments during an appearance on Fox News Sunday, a video of the comments was never posted by Fox News. Other videos from that show were posted, but not Rove’s comments on the Second Amendment.

With the backlash against the comments growing, Rove appeared with Webb the next day to address the situation.

Webb asked: “So your statement caught a few people’s ears, let’s call it that. I read it, and I looked at it, and I’m guessing there was a little bit of sarcasm in there. Was there a hint of sarcasm?”

Rove responded:

People always in moments like this, some politicians look for magic answers. And I don’t think this is an answer, as I said. I went on to describe what I think we ought to be focused on now, which is, we had warning signs from this young man. He talked to friends about it, he talked to other individuals about it. He went on the internet and openly explained what he was going to do and somehow or another we missed those signs.

We need more personal responsibility in our society, in my opinion, in which friends and family and community care about each other to take these things seriously. The idea that somehow or another this could have been prevented by some gun control act just simply is not accurate. Take Chicago, it has some of the toughest gun control laws on the books and it’s a murder capital. It’s because when you take away the right to keep and bear arms bad people keep and bear arms and use them.

As I said… On Fox News Sunday, this is not an answer.

BILL MAHER SAYS MATT DRUDGE, FOX NEWS AND CONSERVATIVE MEDIA INSPIRED DYLANN ROOF

    “We can never know why someone snaps, but I bet you I know where he got his news,” Maher said

BY CHUCK ROSS

Comedian Bill Maher said conservative media — including the Drudge Report, Fox News and The Daily Caller — may have a hand in inspiring Dylann Roof to shoot up a black church in Charleston, S.C. this week.
Maher was discussing the massacre with a panel on his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” that included Daily Caller senior contributor Matt Lewis.

“We can never know why someone snaps, but I bet you I know where he got his news,” Maher said, referring to Roof, who killed nine people in the attack on Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church.
“I looked at your website the last week,” Maher continued, referring to The Daily Caller. “There were a lot of stories about black people. A lot of stories.”

“Same with Matt Drudge,” the host added. “I think they present a really twisted view. I’m not surprised this guy thought ‘they’re taking over the country.’”
Maher then compared Fox News to Anwar al-Awlaki, the American citizen and al-Qaida operative who was killed in a 2011 drone strike. The Obama administration defended targeting al-Awlaki by claiming that as an influential imam he helped radicalize terrorists in the Middle East.
“I wouldn’t say we should be droning Fox News,” Maher said, “but we did drone Anwar al-Awlaki because he inspired people. He didn’t do any terrorist acts, but he did inspire people.”

*(WHY IS IT OK FOR US HERE IN CHICAGO TO HAVE 4 OR 5 BLACK PEOPLE KILLED AND 25 WOUNDED EVERY WEEKEND?)* SC HOUSE MINORITY LEADER BLAMES FOX NEWS FOR CHARLESTON SHOOTING

South Carolina State House Minority Leader Rep. J. Todd Rutherford (D) argued that the shooting at a church in Charleston was due to the fact that the shooter “watches things like Fox News” among other factors on Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead.”

Rutherford, who was friends with one of those killed in the shooting, said, “The problem is this, the rhetoric in South Carolina, the rhetoric nationwide, has led people to believe like this young man, that it’s okay to walk into a church and take nine lives. That it’s okay to take the life of a state senator, that it’s okay to sit in a church, and pray with people for an hour before you decide to take their lives. It’s not okay. It needs to change.”

He continued, “South Carolina is one of five states that does not have a hate crimes law. South Carolina is still the only state that I am aware of that still flies a Confederate flag in front of the State House dome. South Carolina represents, and is emblematic of the problem, which is words that come from these networks that broadcast what they call news, but it’s not. It’s really hate speech and coded language, and leads people to believe that they can walk into a church, because it’s no longer a house of God, it’s a killing ground. It’s a place they can feel free to desecrate and leave blood everywhere, and that’s what this young man did. And he did so based on some ill-gotten belief, on some wrong belief that it’s okay to do that. He hears that, because he watches the news, and he watches things like Fox News, where they talk about things that they call news, but they’re really not. They use that coded language, they use hate speech, they talk about the president as if he’s not the president. They talk about church-goers as if they’re really not church-goers. And that’s what this young man acted on. That’s why he could walk into a church and treat people like animals when they’re really human beings.”
